. is this a legitimate point that this is pay back for the surge and that lindsay graham and senator john mccain have decided somehow in their minds they're doing this. >> i don't think it's pay back for the surge, i think this is pay back for a republican willing to serve in a democratic administration. no matter what you call this, filibuster or otherwise, i think it's at odds with the constitution, i think it'sed a odds with the device and consent language of the conversation. the language says that president obama gets to pick his team exempt in extraordinary circumstances. and the extraordinary circumstances are not met here. john mccain said that chuck hagel would be a great member of cabinet. he spoke of chuck hagel as a tremendous secretary of state. >> political betrayal is a worse sin than being a member of the opposing party, so you have john mccain in the hearing really going after chuck hagel, especially after iraq and the sunshine. but then you have a committee hearing and the new senator from texas, cruz, goes after chuck hagel where then john mccain defends him. it's baffling, it's li

any more. john mccain and lindsey graham because every damn sunday, you turn on the sunday shows. who has their ugly mugs on t.v.? john mccain and lindsey graham on every one of the freakin shows. sometimes more than one. but if they are not on fox, they are on abc. if they are not on ab. c, they are on the "meet the press." if they are not on "meet the press" they are on quite state of the union." they are always dumping on everything obama is doing over and over and over. there are 100 senators. right? alt every sunday do we have to here that idiot lindsey graham from south carolina who has become the biggest scourge of the republican party, the u.s. senate and john mccain who ish something maybe to say 20 years ago but he doesn't have today. it's the same ol' gabble. there they were again yesterday, trotting them out, lindsey graham was on face the nation, and john mccain on fox news sunday. so lindsey graham still doesn't know enough about benghazi and he is not going to let chuck hagel go forward unless we find out some more. >> i don't think
in a very long time. >> meantime senator john mccain says hagel is not qualified but thinks it is time to go ahead with a vote anyway. enough time has gone by to ask questions. hagel probably has the votes anyway to be confirmed. the white house is worried they are building slowly not only hagel but john brennan for the head of the cia. he has brave concerns about the delay. >> between john, brennan the cia director chuck hagel as secretary of defense we want to make sure we have those guys sitting in the chair working. i don't want there to have been something missed because of the hang-up in washington. >> a vote on hagel's nomination is expected sometime after congress returns to work on capitol hill on february 25th. >> steve sen ton a sent ni /* / thank you. >> it is quote dead on arrival. rubio was one of the republican and democrats senators who reached a break through bipartisan agreement on immigration this year. john mccain is also weighing in. on the internet he tweeted headed down to southern arizona to assess senator casher and representative mike mccall. they want to see the tr
presiding over a war in afghanistan. >> and is john mccain now conceding this is all a grudge match? >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder sense the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> the heroes of newtown. president obama pos thumously awards the medal to six people who died while rescuing the children. >> dawn hotsprung and mary serlach, vicky solo, lauren russo, rachel devino, ann marie murphy. they gave their lives to protect the precious children in their care. they gave all they had for the most innocent and helpless among us. that's who we honor today. the courageous heart, the selfless spirit, the inspiring actions of extraordinary americans. >> the triumph was no triumph. the carnival cruise ship finally reaches shore, and -- >> we didn't have water. we didn't have showers. we didn't have hot meals. >> it was lit
. chris, what was that shout out to john mccain and joe lieberman about? that seemed to make john mccain unhappy? >> he did his patented grimace smile. it was a standard cap and trade bill along the framework of what would later be passed by the house of representatives after president and killed in the senate because no republics republicans would support it. john mccain and joe lieberman in three sessions introduced bills to put a cap on carbon and that amount would have gone down year for year. what democrats tried to pass in 2009 and could not get done. it was a reminder to the republicans that there was a remarkable and in my time covering politics, lurch backwards. newt gingrich was haunted by sitting with nancy pelosi endorsing it. john mccain favored cap and trade. all of that has been undone and destroyed as the republican party has put this in this shrinking denial of the political strain. i think the president was trying to point that out and that's why john mccain felt uncomfortable. >> sitting between two democratic senators and wishing he wasn't. he said i am not going to u
. ultimately john mccain did some straight talk yesterday. he said what this is really about. this is about -- this is personal. this is about hagel. what i find interesting, it was funny to hear john mccain say you are so anti-bush, and i wonder if there are a bunch of bush first term folks saying you remember a republican senator who used to say some anti-bush things. >> and just a quick note, chris calizza, the fact that frank -- what people expected him to do, which was to step down, he is the last world war ii veteran -- >> 89. >> 89 years old. as kelly points out. cory booker's presumptions, some some would say certainly latuenberg camp to presume that will he is -- is cory booker a shoe-in or is frank palone got some play with the democratic party, and is there really a primary? >> i think there will be a primary. i think at least initially frank palone is in the race. i think the pressure is he certainly has a certain amount of money. can he raise money against booker, who we expect will be able to raise money? i would say cory booker is prohibitive favorite maybe overstating that h
, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> meantime, senator john mccain says that hagel is not qualified, but he thinks it's time to go ahead with a vote since enough time has gone by to ask questions and now shall the white house is worried because two important nominations are going so slowly not only hagel, but john brennan to head the cia. >> between john brennan, the cia director and chuck hagel secretary of defense, we want to make sure we have them sitting in the the chairs working and i don't want something to have been missed because of the hangup in washington. >> reporter: and the vote is expected sometime after congress returns to work on february 25th, harris. >> harris: steve centanni, thank you. florida senator marco rubio talking about the white house plan for immigration reform saying quote, it's dead on arrival. as you may know, rubio was one of the republican and democrat senators who reached a break through bipartisan break through. another member of the so-called gang of 8, john mccain tweeted, headed down to southern arizona to assess bo
no evidence of. you have john mccain coming to chuck hagel's defense. >> good for john mccain. >> good for john mccain. you have stepped over the line. >> there's been a pattern with the hagel debate of people going beyond legitimate public debate. we saw it on the charges of anti-semitism. now illegal money or whatever. there's a legitimate debate to have about chuck hagel or any other nominee. this is way past that. but there's an irony here. hagel, in part, got this nomination in order to bridge the partisan divide. it was supposed to be someone who would appeal to republicans. instead he gets reported out with a straight party-line vote. no republicans supporting him. this cannot be what anyone in washington intended. >> i know. john heilemann, i hate to keep bringing him up because i hate bringing up somebody simply for bad behavior, but i'm absolutely flummoxed by ted cruz's short-term and long-term political strategy. you know, mark halperin told me before he got sworn in, he was a very smart guy, a bright guy, a harvard lawyer. i just don't -- this is a guy that could have such
. senator john mccain says he may filibuster chuck hagel's nomination if the president doesn't get more information on the attack in benghazi and a hold on general renan if he doesn't get answers about the use of drones in the united states of america. that's an issue we talked about last week when i asked the chairman of the house intelligence committee that very question, whether he could see a time when drowns were used against american citizens on american soil. >> i don't think we'll ever get there. i think it's very, very important to understand that the legal justification for using an air strike against an enemy, no matter their citizenship, is long standing in this country. they no longer have the benefit of u.s. citizenship to protect them when they're on foreign land fighting the battle of the united states. >> earlier, i spoke with rand paul of kentucky and asked him if he thinks he is wrong. >> well, he didn't say no. what i want to hear from john brennan before i agree to let his nomination go forward, that no cia or the department of defense cannot kill someone in america
of questions to ask. stiantor john mccain said hagel is not qualified but the senate should confirm him because a reasonable amount of time has passed. >> thank you, steve. >> you bet. >> it is an emotional day in rome, that has pope john paul ii blesses want faithful from his window. for the first time since announcing his resignation. a crowd of 50,000 fill would st. peter's square 11 days before the pope is stepping down. meanwhile the cardinals are areiching in rome to lobby for the next pope of the church. pastor of our lady. monsingor always good to see you. >> good to be with you, too. >> what direction will the church go and who will the cardinals pick? >> i think we have a couplele of issuings facing us. the need for a strong organizational leadership in rome. between the aging of john paul ii and a pope in the late cents and 80s and admits he's slowing down, a lot has been let g. we need a strong letter in rome and be directive . someone with john paul roim two's charis mareach out to the third world and europe and america where we have lost many, many catholics. i hope we have someon

of all, you see senators lindsey graham and john mccain. two of the biggest headaches for this president, especially going into the second term, but sitting between them tonight, you will see senator chuck schumer, the number three democrat in the house. he wants to craft an immigration compromise with republicans. they're his two closest allies on that. so, they will be down there together. and also, i see, out of camera view off to the side, we have, for the first time in american history, two african-american senators. both recently appointed to fill vacancies. tim scott of south carolina, senator will cowan of massachusetts. and they are democrat and republican and they are sitting together also on the side. but for the most part, they are back to their battle stations here. >> another simple of bipartisan unity, about 40 members of congress will be wearing orange pins, that stands for the no labels movement. democrats and republicans who are committed, they say, to reaching across party lines in order to get something done. about 40 or them wearing those pips tonight. >> just a litt

by the cia. but senator john mccain says the time has come to put the pentagon in charge. >> since when is the intelligence agency supposed to be an air force of drones that goes around killing people? i believe that it's a job for the department of defence. >> reporter: whoever is in charge and despite all the controversy, drones have become part of the american way of war. and their role is only getting bigger jeff? >> reporter: david martin thank you. next up here india's huge religious pilgrimmage marred by a deadly stampede. ñ2 our financial advice is geared specifically to current and former military members and their families.

is scheduled for friday when they try to get the votes necessary to move the process forward. john mccain backed away from the pledge not to filibuster hagel's nod. he says he is waiting to see if the obama administration responds to calls to offer up more details about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >>> leon panetta minced few words but what is most likely the last press briefing on the job. with the threat of a march 1st sequester looming, he lashed out at congress. he thinks they could be crippling with price cuts. >> oftentimes i feel luke i don't have a full partnership with my former colleagues on the hill in trying to do what's right for this country. we need to find solutions. we can't just sit here and. [ beep ] we can't just sit here and complain. we can't just sit here and blame others. we can't just sit here and point fen finger at each other. we have to solve problems that we're facing. this country is facing real threats in the world. we can't do this alone. we've got to do this with a full partnership of the congress in both houses of the congress. >>
, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this
john mccain says he expects hagel to be confirmed. >> the federal aviation administration is looking for sites test flight drones. >> they plan to create six strong test sites around the country. >> the goal is to allow widespread use of unmanned aircraft by 2015, but the faa is well behind on the deadline. >> not everyone is in favor of increasing the number of runs in the sky. privacy advocates worry that widespread drones usually to surveillance society in which the public is constantly monitored. >> we also know more about what happened in sealed hearings concerning the chandra levy murder case. >> she was the washington internal gained national attention because of our romantic relationship with california congressman gary condi . >> ingmar guandiqui, an illegal immigrant from el salvador, was convicted of murder in 2010. but a judge has been holding still oppose commission hearings in recent weeks that the signal a problem with the prosecution. >> those transcripts we made available in about a week. >> still ahead on the kron 4 morning news, watching wall street this morning af
change like the one john mccain and joe lieberman worked on. if congress won't act soon to protect future generations, i will. >> let's bring in the daily beast who urged the president to hammer the gob. good to see you. did the president take your advice? >> i think he did. specifically with reference to the budget cuts that loom and with regard to that issue, i think he was very tough on the republicans. he came out and framed the issue the way he wanted and i was glad to see he started the speech after the introductory remarks. the lead line is march 1st. i was glad to hear him say that the american people that the republicans are playing a game here. i'm not going to have it. >> they said the speech was a christmas wish list. michael? >> in some respects, sure. as your guests said, it does seem unlikely that the things will be law by january if you look at the total package off the top of your head, give me the two big ones. >> immigration is first on the list. i'm a naysayer and that gets through the house of representatives the day i see it. immigration is one. it still has a better
illegal immigrants. senator john mccain is accusing the white house of trying to kill this. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this raises the question that many of us continued to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another cajole to beat up republicans? >> reporter: marco rubio is critical to the talks to try get a deal. he called the president's plan half baked because he doesn't think the eight year time frame in which it would take illegal immigrants to get on a path of citizenship, he doesn't think that is long enough. they are fighting on over the details on policy. >> shep: white house says republicans are overplaying this? >> president put these details not with the leak from u.s.a. today and white house says it didn't leak anything. nonetheless, he gave a speech last month where he laid out many of the details on immigration. whether it looked out this weekend or not, he has put that on the table. his new chief of staff was on three sunday talk shows saying the president's only putting this plan together as plan "b" hoping congres
republican senators john mccain and lindsey gramm, both -- graham. both tough critics of obama's foreign policy. >> send me send a comp men'sive immigration -- comprehensive immigration bill in the next few months and i will sign it right away and america will be better for it. >>> also, a star student at u.c. berkley revealed he's an undocumented immigrant. he shared his story as part of an online campaign for the dream act. that's the proposed immigration law that congress is considering that would allow certain students like himself the path to citizenship. critics say that this plan, however, may just encourage and invite illegal immigration. d.c. lawmakers are expected to take up the issue this year. >>> and today pope benedict blessed thousands of pilgrims from his window overlooking st. peter's square. >> that was the second to last angelus blessing before he steps down at the end of the upon. he outstretched his arms. he made no mention of his decision to resign but thanks the faithful for the affection and spiritual closeness. >>> now there's
:30. >> bill: if they call a filibuster and john mccain said he would not support a filibuster, it looks like there would be 60 votes to stop the filibuster. >> that's right. >> bill: can you stop -- do you know, can you stop a hold? if inhoff puts a hold on, that's not a filibuster. that's a different animal, right? >> it's a delay. it's a delay tactic. so i think it merely pushes it off into the future. >> bill: but my understanding one senator can put a hold on somebody's nomination and until that senator agrees to lift it, there's nothing the other senators can do. is that correct? >> we saw that a lot with coburn putting a hold on everything, on legislation, on spending legislation. the pressure here will be fairly remarkable. >> bill: to go along without a secretary of defense. >> i think pressure from the pentagon, military leaders the public not having a guy in charge of the pentagon. it's not going to be sustainable for them. >> bill: the center for american progress has a lot of ties to the white house. so you're going to be live blogging tonight. what does that mean? >> he's going
to once admire john mccain and bob kerry as a democrat for the same reasons. they are independent, and weren't bound to their party. they put the good of the nation above the party, willing to buck their party when they thought their party was wrong, like bob kerry did, like john mccain used to do, like chuck hagel did. couldn't it backfire them on this sense? he is going to be defense secretary. they are going to want stuff for him. they are going to want stuff for their district. they are going to want contracts for the district. they are going to want tours of the pentagon. chuck hagel is going to have a list of people who stabbed him in the back. right? >> right. they stabbed him in the front, i think. >> you are right. >> no screatus here yeah. thighs guys will -- i think that he probably sitting at how many today and over the president's day recess will be relishing the opportunity in the future should he have it to get these guys crawling back to him begging for help if there are base closures, contracts being handed out, and they will need to work
market-based solution to climate change, like the one john mccain and joe liberman worked on together a few years ago, but if congress won't act soon to protect future generations, i will. i will direct -- i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution, prepare our community for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. four years ago, other countries dominated the clean energy market and the jobs that came with it, we have begun to change that. last year, wind energy added nearly half of all new power capacity in america. let's generate even more. solar energy gets cheaper by the year. let's drive down costs even further. as long as countries like china keep going all in on clean energy, so must we. and in the meantime, the natural gas boom has led to cleaner power and greater energy independence. we need to encourage that. that's why my administration will keep cutting red tape and speeding up new oil and gas permits. that's got to be part of an all of the above
and then at least another two republican votes and then you have senators like john mccain saying that they are not going to back afilibustl a filibuste. so they are still confident that chuck hagel's nomination will be confirmed. you have mitch mcconnell coming out suggesting he might try to slow walk this process. majority leader harry reid saying he's not going to let that happen. again, the white house at this hour, martin, still confident that hagel will be confirmed. >> and this in the context of what happened last night. what are your sources telling you about the likelihood of the president referencing north korea and its nuclear weapons test in his speech tonight? >> reporter: well, martin, my sources are telling me it is very likely that he is going to reference what happened in north korea overnight. remember, the white house put out a statement overnight condemning the action saying that it was a highly provocative action. i can also tell you that president obama spoke to the president of south korea today. they shared their concerns about this third nuclear launch, w
to figure it all out. >> joel ruben, appreciate you taking the time to talk to me. joining me now is john mccain who worked for the lapd. he's a senior correspondent at cbs this morning. what have you learned in the last 24 hours or so that you find most interesting? >> a number of things. number one, the fact that you say how do you gauge their confidence level that that's dorner inside? i think last night, the lapd commander said we're not going to remove any of the protective details on the people on this hit list until we're absolutely sure that's him in there -- >> more than 50 plus people we believe. >> so that's 58 members under guard. that's more than 400 officers. these are the gangs divisions, the narcotics divisions from all of the areas of the lapd had been mobilized to a plain clothes surveillance portion, as well as a high profile uniform portion. frankly, this is something we haven't gotten into while it was going on, but i think we can say it now, but the threat is so high and some of the locations were so difficult to protect that entire families, husbands, wives and children we
ones, who want a deal. people like john mccain, marco rubio who are seriously invested in the process of putting together a comprehensive bill. they see the politics have changed on this issue. they're trying to convince their party that now is the time to get behind a comprehensive bill that includes border security measures, that includes enforcement mechanisms and includes a pathway to citizenship for the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants that democrats are pushing. there is a chance to get it done but it's not going to be easy. the senate will be tough and the house is going to be even harder. >> warner: norm, do you see it this way, that there is a prospect here and that you've got a change of mind at least among some republicans? >> yes, there's no doubt. six months ago we would have said no way will we do anything on this issue, seriously. the election changed all of that and it's changed the dynamics. but manu is right that we have a couple of big obstacles here. the first is one that janet napolitano basically highlighted: the devil is in the details. a framework is easy
chuck hagel, and a fight it was. senate republicans, most notably john mccain, have effectively blocked his confirmation at least for now. they are demanding more information from president obama on the attack in benghazi. joining me as they do every week on cnn, democratic strategist maria cordona and amy holmes, editor for "the blaze." maria, i'll start with you. >> good morning. >> talk about a testy confirmation hearing. is this just the latest part of some playground, or do you think there's more to this? >> i think it is absolutely the latest in partisan politics, susan. and i think it doesn't bode well for the republicans. they already have a perception from the american people that this is the party of no, the party of obstruction. the party that just wants to deny president obama whatever it is that he is asking for. and they haven't really offered anything positive for the american people to support them on. and i think this is just the latest in that. and you see it from their own words, they said, look, this is just a hold, we're not going to -- we just need him to wait for
